Photographic Simulations for AT&T Tower at Grand Isle Sheriff Dept.

New Cingular Wireless PCS, LLC d/b/a AT&T is proposing to construct a 180’ communications tower and associated compound at the headquarters of the Grand Isle Sheriff’s Department, 10 Island Circle, Grand Isle, VT, and has distributed a 60-day advance notice in accordance with 30 V.S.A. 248a dated December 30, 2019.  To assess the visual effects of the Project, AT&T conducted a balloon test at the site of the proposed Site on Thursday, January 9, 2020 from 9:00am–1:00pm. The balloon was flown at a height of 180 feet and was photographed from public areas.  The photographs were then used to generate photographic simulations of the Facility from various vantage points.  These photographic simulations—depicting the project as both a painted monopole (brown) [proposed] and a standard matte finish monopole (grey) [alternative design] are now available for viewing and downloading below:
